Christopher Taylor, Pianist
When J. S. Bach wrote the Goldberg Variations, he specified that they were to be played on an instrument with two manuals, or keyboards. The Metropolitan Museum's Musical Instruments collection is home to one of only sixty double-manual pianos ever made. The brilliant Christopher Taylor has actively promoted the rediscovery of this unique instrument, and performs Bach's most ambitious work in its entirety, on a Bösendorfer double manual ca. 1940 piano—as Bach had intended.
